    About that swimsuit, people will keep and use the strangest things! A few years back I dropped my prescription eyeglasses (which I used only for driving, so they were in my hand) in a parking lot on my way into a store. As soon as I was in the store I realized I'd lost them so immediately went back out and retraced my steps-- but they were already gone. I left my name at the store and called back to check repeatedly, advertised etc.-- nothing. When I returned to the optician and told him what had happened, he said people come in all the time with glasses they say they found, which they are now wearing themselves! My jaw just dropped. Why would anyone wear someone else's prescription glasses?!?

    Twolf, do you have a splint for the wrist? I hope you feel better soon.

    Today I am wearing a sample of AG Quel Amour which I got at Henri Bendel last Saturday (the SA kindly sprayed a bit into my empty atomizer.) I'm thinking this one may be full bottle worthy. I've smelled it before and thought the same, though, yet have never taken the plunge with this one. Not sure why.

    Sending sympathetic hugs to OudGirl,Twolf, and Jasper.

    My SotD is M. Micallef White Sea, from a sample. This is a gorgeously blended fragrance that does have a seaside flavor, to my nose. It is not an aquatic.

    Oud_Girl, I'm sorry your suit got swiped, it's icky that's for sure.

    Jasper {{{{{{{hug}}}}}}

    Twolf, I feel your pain. Got one of those wrists myself but it's an on & off thing.

    Today I have bronchitis & I feel awful. I'm supposed to be going to Back to School night but that's out...I'm contagious! Sofie's birthday sleepover is Saturday & I don't want to dissapoint her & her friends but I need some help. Where are those elves when you need them?

    Comfort scent for me today, Natori, the new one. I know it smells good, even if I can't smell it myself today.

    Robert Piguet's Visa seemed perfect today. Finally got around to ordering Dioressence today. Last month I cut back on perfume purchases, but spent a fair amount finding old movies on DVD. Go figure....

    Oh, Oud Girl, that is lousy of someone to do, let us just hope they end up with a UTI because they are evil. Big ((hugs)) to you. Glad the dinner was a nice one though.

    Twolfie, i do hope your wrists will be feeling better soon, you need a ((hug)) also.

    Jasper, that is so sad about Lucky, i too hope he is in a better place frolicking around.

    RHM sweetie, take care of yourself and feel better real soon. Hugs to Sofie, as always.

    Today i started out in vintage Vivara by Pucci, quite similar to Diorella (older version), tonight i am wearing Cristalle by Chanel, trying to get in all these warmer weather scents before it cools down tomorrow.

    Hugs and love to all

    Swimsuit stealing? Wtf? I hope it was just a mistake and you get it back, An_oud_girl.

    Twolf, rest that wrist!

    Jasper, (((big hugs))) to you. It is so hard to lose a beloved furry friend…but you’re right, Lucky is in a better place where there is no pain. I am frequently visited in my dreams by dogs who have gone to Doggie Heaven. It’s always such a joyful reunion!

    I wore Estee Lauder's Pure White Linen as SotD for substitute teaching in a high school. That was my first day back subbing this school year. I really enjoyed it, but I'm wiped out. The little angels really are draining.

    This evening I'm wearing some vintage Y parfum that I bought on ebay and that was waiting for me in the mailbox. My goodness, is it ever gorgeous! Even though it has turned slightly in the top notes, and the juice has darkened from its original pale color to an amber-honey color, it still smells better than anything I've smelled in ages. So that was a treat to come home to.

    Easy evening at home tonight. I really must cook us a proper meal tonight. We've been souping & sandwiching it lately.

    Have a good evening!

    I am so sorry Jasper, hugs to you.
    Twolf, I am glad you are resting your wrist.

    Oud_Girl, the swimsuit affair is really odd!

    Today I wore Back in Black from a sample. It is a nice honey, very linear on me, but I don't think it is worth the price. I think I will go for the Filles en Aiguilles insteadm, but not soon.

    Smelling like honey all day I was glad that Yogui Bear and Boo Boo Bear are not visiting Southern California.

    Hi all, with special hugs and good feelings to those in need.

    Today's SOTD was my first sample of The House of Creative Scentualization Beauty Comes From Within.



    Super, super candy-sweet citrus and vanilla.

    Honestly, this is a combination that I'm learning never works on me. I like my citrus puckery and peppery, not candied. While this stopped short of being pure cotton candy and actually added some nuance with some florals and cinnamon, I just can't wear these.

    But I'm sure there are some here who would love it.

    Dude, oud girl, that's fargin gross! And disturbing! Wtf is wrong with some people. Btw, I always thought you were pretty gangster.

    (((Jasper))), what a kind thing you did. My heart goes out to you and Lucky, that little animal is in a very special place now. He was lucky to have a friend like you!

    Love the Yogi Bear ref, Arwen, I think you're okay as long as you're not carrying a picnic basket.

    lara128 you smell goooooood!

    I couldn't decide what to wear this morning so I asked DH to choose out of three. He chose Alien.



    Have a wunnerful night, everyone!

    Today's SOTE has been Thiery Mugler A*Men Pure Coffee.



    WARNING: RANT INCOMING

    My basic gripe with Pure Coffee is the same I have for every single chocolate frag I've tried: It doesn't smell like actual chocolate. The "chocolate" note that everyone seems to use, from perfumes to chocolate-scented candles to chocolate-flavored lip balm to whatever, always smells to me like an oddly synthetic mix of patchouli, cardboard, and actual chocolate. I've even smelled all-natural essential-oil scents and flavorings derived from actual cocoa beans, and it smells like the weird fake "chocolate" too.

    So this leads me to believe that the smell of rich chocolate is somehow too nuanced to be recreated. Something about the roasting of the beans and the conching and the tempering and everything else makes the smell of actual chocolate so complex that the smell and taste of it simply can't be recreated without actual chocolate.

    I think the thing that chaps my hide is that no one seems to care. Burr gave Pure Coffee four stars! People insist that Tootsie Rolls and Oreo cookies taste like real chocolate. And people smell the crime against humanity that is Montale's Chocolate Greedy and say "Mmm - chocolate!" and are perfectly happy, while I'm trapped in my little padded cell screaming "That's not what chocolate smells like!!!"

    Maybe I'm the weird one here (ok, definitely I'm the weird one here), but I just wish perfumers would go out and buy a chocolate bar - even cheap stuff like Hersheys or Cadbury that's more wax than chocolate - and put it in a little pan on the stove. Turn on the heat and melt it. That intoxicating, life-affirming aroma that's filling your kitchen? THAT'S what chocolate smells like...

    So, if it's true that the beautiful true aroma of chocolate is simply un-recreatable, there can simply never be a chocolate scent that I'll ever like.

    Sort of depressing.

    RANT COMPLETED

    Anyway, back to A*Men Pure Coffee.

    It started briefly with a combination of coffee and patchouli before quickly fading to a faux-chocolate/lavender combination that suffers from the problems stated in my above rant.

    Not really bad, but it comes off on me as more of a lavender/patchouli lightly flavored with coffee and chocolate than the unabashed gourmand I was expecting.

    I prefer Bond's New Haarlem to this, honestly, though I'm still not 100% convinced that NH is coffee-grail material.

    The search continues...

    Thank you all for the kind words (especially the new one I learned from Sunnyfunny-- "fargin" lol!). DH has been supportive as well. He tells me to try to move on from my anger and have some fun trying to score another good deal on a suit. I do love shopping for bargain! I did pick up a suit today at a sporting goods store-- a Speedo for $30 that normally retails for about $60. I checked again at the gym today, but the suit had not reappeared. It is as SMM and others have said-- the fact that someone felt they could help themselves to something obviously not theirs. I'm the only one who dries their suit in the sauna, afaik. It is seldom used at all; in fact, I recall seeing only one other person in there over the past 6 months that I've been a member. Oh well.

    Jaspar~ I'm sorry to hear Lucky's story didn't quite make it. However, I hope that the awareness you've raised will help other unfortunate pooches.

    3xasif~ *love* the Vent Vert ad! I suppose I really got to try that sometime!

    Gentle hugs to those with aches and pains.

    I'm wearing the three scents for this month's Blind Sniff. Yes, all three-- kumquat said we could! I don't know what all I'm wearing, but I smell marvelous!

    Sweety, I'm right there with you in the padded cell. I received Pure Coffee in a swap last week and I immediately quarantined it in my "to swap" folder after it attempted choking me to death with its plastic patchouli and chocolate. Both are notes that can ruin an acceptable scent for me entirely.
    Only two fumes that purportedly have chocolate as a note are ok with me: Coromandel and Borneo 1834. Tried those?
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.
